This new science program brings hands-on learning to Salinas children

Kurt Gabrielson grew up on a farm and was exposed to nature and science. He often studied it with his father.

The practice of science has always been in his family, and from an early age he knew it was his vocation. After nearly 30 years of education, he is now teaching science to students at El Sosal Middle School.

This year there is a fun twist on his way of doing things.

Gabrielson will soon host the official Grand Opening of the Salinas Community Science Workshop (SCSW).

The SCSW program teaches science, construction and engineering concepts and provides an outdoor space for students to actually learn their skills. It was the first in Salinas and was founded in May after many years of pilot programs.

Curt Gabrielson, a teacher at El Sausal Middle School, will demonstrate the capabilities of a student's science project.

Projects range from bicycle repairs and modifications to woodwork, magnetic toys and electrical equipment.

About 20 students are enrolled in the after-school program, and their reaction to it is nothing less than joy and excitement, Gabrielson said.

For second-year middle school Luis Pined Ante, this program is an opportunity to learn the skills needed to achieve his goal of working in the construction industry one day.
